Lyrics

On the day of the wake, I just wanted to stayIn my bed
Because sometimes you do
I struggled to think, as I crawled to the sink
For a much needed drink, maybe two

And the music played low, as my pockets exploded with change
As I emptied my drawers
The telephone rang, and your voice sounded strange
While I picked my pants up off the floor

It’s the only way I know to say goodbye
It’s the only way I know to say goodbye

I'd later regret, my last smokes got all wet
You put my hand up your dress to keep warm
The park bench was dry, and our phones had long died
And my ticket was left crumbled n torn

We both caught a whiff, someone smokin' a spliff
As it started to drift down the line
We waited so long, I guess my watch wrong
And we'd missed the last bus for a while

It’s the only way I know to say goodbye…hmmm
It’s the only way I know to say goodbye...mmm

Distances grown, we never pick up the phone
We just text, often days to reply
It took far too long, but I wrote you this song
To remember we still had good times

'Cause it’s the only way I know to say goodbye
It’s the only way I know to say goodbye
